19-year-old Dream Commisso was arrested Tuesday in New York City and charged with assault as a hate crime for attacking an Asian couple on the subway while shouting "Asian Pig."

According to the New York Post, Commisso and two unidentified companions approached an Asian couple and demanded their subway seats. After the pair refused, Commisso and an unidentified man and woman in her company began punching and kicking the two victims.

Commisso was arrested in East Harlem and "booked on charges of assault as a hate crime, aggravated harassment, assault, menacing and harassment."

The incident happened around 8 pm on November 19, on a shuttle train heading from Grand Central to Times Square. The couple, a 42-year-old man and a 41-year-old woman, were seated in the shuttle when the three suspects, including Commisso, approached.

They suspects demanded the couple get up and give them their seats and they refused, sparking the assault. 

The assault left the 42-year-old with a cut that he refused medical attention for.

The three suspects got off at Times Square and faded into the crowd.

There has been a marked surge in violent crime in NYC subways that have seen marauders dressed all in green terrorizing straphangers, victims thrown onto the tracks, and children being stabbed to death.

As city subway crime is up 41 percent this year, Mayor Eric Adams told his citizens on Friday that the solution to warding off violent criminals is to stop looking at phones and listening to music as New Yorkers make their commute.

New York City subway riders say that personal safety and security are their number one concern while riding the transit system, according to data from a recent MTA survey.

Overall crime is up 34.4 percent across New York City and has been surging at rates as high as 50 percent since 2020. Felony assaults in New York are up 17 percent.

In August, Adams said NYC was too crime-ridden for illegal immigrants who were getting off buses anywhere else but the Big Apple as they were being transported up from Texas.
